Regular City Council Meeting
SPECIAL PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY ALTERATIONS TO MEETING FORMAT
City Council and Planning Commission Meetings
Due to the unprecedented public health threats posed by COVID-19 and the resultant need for social distancing, changes to the City Council and Planning Commission meeting format are required. Executive Order N-25-20 and N-29-20 from Governor Gavin Newsom allow for telephonic City meetings of the City Council and Planning Commission and waives in-person accessibility for those meetings, provided that there are other means for the public to participate. Therefore, and effective immediately, and continuing only during the period in which state or local public health officials have imposed or recommended social distancing measures, the Rio Dell City Council will only be viewable via livestreaming through our partners at Access Humboldt via their YouTube channel, Suddenlink channels on Cable TV, or directly through Zoom.
